GoldStar DH304Y5 Dehumidifier won't run

I took the wire off the humidity control and then it runs. The humidity control does not even click as to gauge when it has to turn on the machine. Could this be the problem to replace the humidity control?

SOURCE: LG Goldstar dehumidifier runs constantly

sounds like the rheostat (aka rotary swithch) is opened (fried). can get new one on www.appliancefactoryparts.com for 8.19 + s/h. need to know how to solder though. otherwise you will be looking at having to buy new unit for $120+

Take cover off. First check the fuse on the circuit board. If it's blown replace it. That should get the motor running, the motor might be or is going out. If the motor is bad you'll have to replace the motor. If the fuse is good and the motor is good, unhook the wires on circuit board that go to the humidity control switch. If the unit comes on with the humidity control switch unhooked, you'll have to replace the humidity control switch. Sears has them for about $11.50. Hope this helps.

Only available for DjVu reader (download link on LG site). You'll need to download and install the plugin then close and relaunch your browser. I was only able to get it to work in IE in the end with Firefox and Chrome not working. IE objected I had to "allow" the plugin to run then once again close and relaunch the browser then it finally worked. Good Luck!

My dehumidifier doesn't stop even if you turn the knob down to zero


Turn the knob the other way - you are most likely setting the target humidity closer to zero, which would cause it to run more (or constantly).

At a higher target humidity it will run less. You should hear a distinct click as you turn it higher - that is the current humidity in the room, and the compressor will shut off. The fan may run a little while longer, but should shut off as well in a few minutes.

Good luck and please rate this answer 4 stars if helpful.

Fan always runs, speed doesnt change (low/high), setting humidity level doesnt impact...is this a control board or circuit board issue?


Verify the humidity reading with another device. Perhaps the humidity sensor is dirty or bad.

Another possibility is the switching device that runs the compressor and fan is shorted. If it's a mechanical relay, the contacts may have welded together, or if it's a solid-state relay, it's got a punch-through or meltdown in a device junction. My guess is it's a mechanical relay since you mention it used to click on and off and now you don't hear that. The relay may be on the control board, or it may be mounted separately - I don't have a photo or diagram of the inside of your model available.

Runs for a few minutes then shuts off, easy fix. First, remove water catcher and slide filter out and clean it. Then find the two screws that hold on the front panel remove front panel. Make sure the unit is un-plugged. The humidity control dial has two wires connected to it. clip the inner wire. This will keep the unit on full. You could replace the humidity control dial, but why bother?

Will not regulate humidity correctly. I set it at 60% and it is still running when the humidity in room reads 45%. I have confirmed this with a separate humidity gauge.


It may just be the fan running and not the compressor. Some unit's are designed that way, so that air is constantly moving and when the humidity level rises above what you have it set on, the compressor will automatically turn ON and remove that moisture. Wants it's back to where you have its set, the compressor will turn OFF. Check your Owner's Manual to see if your model has that feature.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a DDR7009EE and the fan runs continuously even when the humidity in the room is below the setting on the machine. Shouldn't the fan stop when the desired humidity is reached?


Lyle, your particular model is designed for the fan to function constantly. However, the fan running doesn't mean the compressor is always running. The reason the unit was designed this way, is for the air to be continually moving, and when the humidity sensor picks up a rise in the humidity level (above where you have it set) the compressor will turn ON and extract that humidity.

Your unit is working as it should. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have the exact same problem. I've isolated it to the thermal fuse for the fan motor. This can be confirmed by jumping the black wire to the blue wire coming from the fan motor while the unit is running. Only problem I have is I haven't been able to locate the fuse yet.

Will not run or turn on light will not turn on


Had a similar problem with Goldstar model DH305. A solution was already posted about cutting the two white wire going to humidity control, and it works until tray fills up (no control). However, if you want a complete fix which allows you to control by selecting humidity level go to the following site:

Humidistat


the humidistat is inside the machine behind the control panel. it has a mylar piece that expands and contracts according to room humidity. one side is connected to a super sensitive switch that is part of the fan/compressor circuit. you could just jump this out with a piece of wire but you'll have no control over the humidity. the unit will just keep on running.

The main switch is broken off and it does not turn on


You have to remove the entire wrapper to get to the control circuit board, make sure you unplug unit!! Locate the small white wires that plug into the board and go to the humidity switch.Unplug the connector at the board and plug the machine in and see if everything runs. ps make sure you reinstall the bucket or unit will not run. If machine runs replace that humidity control. The plug on the board is usually white. The other white wire is 4 the light. I hope this helps./

DH30 Dehumidifier Compressor Does not Operate


I just picked one up at a tag sale, seller said it worked sometimes. Seems to have the same problem as yours. I took the time to tweak all of the connections and then re-soldered the control board with no luck. I finally disconnected the humidity control and it worked fine. By disconnecting the humidity control the unit defaults to it's highest setting and you have to unplug the unit to turn it off. Conclusion so far is that the humidity control rheostat is bad.
Note: Now while running the fan runs continuously and the compressor cycles on and off every 10 to 15 minutes. This may to be normal since the unit appears to be doing its job and I'm not sure how it is supposed to run since a purchased it broken.
